The first day of the second Test match between Bangladesh and New Zealand in Wellington has been washed out by heavy rain.

The heavens opened up at 6 am and the rain continued pouring down well into the afternoon leaving puddles all over the outfield.

The day’s play was abandoned by the umpires without the toss taking place after a scheduled inspection of the ground at 3:00 pm.

The second day of the Test match is likely to be hampered by rain delays and breaks as showers are forecast until mid-day on Saturday.

Bangladesh are currently trailing the Test series 0-1 after losing to New Zealand by an innings and 52 runs in Hamilton.
